    I've tried to cull just the HT-related items (and included some videogame consoles and titles) for this list of Black Friday sale items from various retail stores.

    If you feel like staying home, be sure to check online sites, like Amazon who should be aggressive in matching most online deals, but there will be online deals to be found, just have to scour for them.

    Wal-Mart is pretty good for price-matching other retailer ads if you bring them the sales circular and it's a direct match item-for-item (product numbers when possible). Some people do all their shopping at Wal-Mart and have them price-match all local competitor ads.

    Bear in mind that there may be regional differences in the prices listed here and in the sales ads published in your area.

    Here are the Black Friday deals:

    According to blackfriday.info, it's the S360 model at Target. (Yep. There is no S380 model.)

    (admin note - fixed!)

    No 52-inch or larger TVs on sale? Guess I'll sleep in, then spend the rest of the day seeing how much longer my 13 year old CRT can last :)

    Regulus -- if you are looking to get Season 1-4 of House go to Best Buy starting today -- they have the seasons for the same $12.99 (and dont have to deal with the insanity).

    If you are looking for Season 8 of House at Target you are going to be waiting in line for about 3 years since they are only currently on Season 6 -- LOL

    Thanks Patrick. It's nice to have all this info in one place. I'll see if my daughter can pick up Braveheart at WalMart and/or Gone with the Wind at Target.

    I get to work my first Black Friday at Wal-Mart his year (yaaaaah!) and it should be very fun. (yaaaah!)
    Anyways, after my shift is over, I'm thinking of picking up if still available:
    PS3 120 Gig Bundle Pack including PS3, Dark Knight-BD, Infamous and Arkham Asylum - $299
    Sony Bravia 46'' LCD 1080p - $798
    Can anyone recommend these two items or give a better suggestion? Perhaps a different TV?
    Thanks

    Ryan

    Thanks for the suggestion Gregg. I've heard mixed reviews from friends about Plasmas. They all say LCD is the way to go, what's your opinion on the matter?

    They are likely wrong unless they tend to watch all their stuff in very brightly lit rooms -- or play loads and loads of video games or like the rather digitally video look of many/most of them.

    Do your friends actually own Plasma and LCD TVs? Or are they "reviews" from browsing the big box stores? As Man says, comparing TVs at a Walmart or BestBuy can be very misleading in how they would actually compare at home.


    How do these "Lightning Deals" work? Are they one-day sales, or do you have to buy them within some short period of being posted?

    After working for Target for 18 years, you have my sympathy!
    On the flipside, I now work at Starbucks on the perimeter of our mall and I will be opening at 3am on Friday to caffeinate all the Black Friday shoppers!

    And I will pick up Snow White on Wed after work. Does anyone know if Disney will be doing the same thing with Up (releasing a full special edition standard DVD a few weeks after the combo pack)? Just don't have plans to upgrade quite yet...

    Eric:

    I full endorse the concept of those DVD/Blu-ray combo packs that Disney's doing.

    When that day comes you take the plunge and decide to upgrade, you'll already have a few Disney classics ready-to-go and won't be put in the awkward (and expensive) position of re-buying these titles yet again. And amazon has had some TERRIFIC pre-order deals on the Disney combos.

    To answer your question about a DVD-only release of Up, I haven't heard.

    They released a 2 disc DVD set of Up the same day as the one disc DVD and the Blu-ray. Even if you don't have a Blu-ray player, the Blu-ray was the one to go with because it was cheaper than the 2 disc DVD and you got all the special features.
